    Hi everyone. I don't know what to do to answer this question. help me plz.

    "In some hot countries, tea is served in a pot with a glass 2/3 full of ice. The boiling tea is poured into the glass to fill it. Estimate the remperature of the resulting drink.

    Specific latent heat of fusion for ice = 3.3 x 10^5 J/kg
    Specific heat capacity of water: 4200

      You need to estimate only, so assume that the mass of ice is about 2/3 and the water 1/3 (of the total mass) when the glass is full.
      Let the mass of the water = m and the ice = 2m.
      Initial temperature of tea = 100 deg C
      Let final temperature =T [the answer you want]

      Equate the heat energy "lost" by this hot tea, to that gained by

      1) the ice melting [latent heat]
      2) the ice (now water) warming up from zero to T.

      Do you know the formulas for heat lost/gained in terms of mass and latent heat; and mass, specific heat capacity and change in temperature?
      Use these.

      BTW. The "m" will cancel out.
